Does anyone know if the guy in the new Nike adverts running and listening to music is Cillian Murphy, because it looks just like him but has an American accent?

dear Pepsi Max marketing goons- How exactly is being magically transformed into a bobble head on someone's dashboard "Maxing" your life? I for one would be highly disappointed were this to occur in my life.

It is quite impressive, although I remain sceptical about whether itwould be bale to actually hold its own weight. It would be a LOT of cake. I like the little touches though, like the engine, and the bit where someone pours Golden Syrup in like it's oil or something.

Agreed, it makes no sense and annoys me every time it's on.

I was in fact referring to the milk advert with the little figures, but you're right though.

Does the new Oasis advert scare the crap out of anyone else? I've been having nightmares about that wooden policeman's head spraying me with water in the dead of night.

I saw this advert last night and it's amaaaazing. I really wanted to shove my hand through the bonnet and take a big scoop out of it though. Running and jumping into it sounds great as well though.



Also, the oasis advert is the stuff of hellish nightmares. *Brrrr*

"The Chemical Company" advert bothers me, because I can't help thinking they're wasting their money putting adverts on prime time telly. Well done for making some chemical that's useful in making books, but I'm not sure that many people watching FilmFour on a Monday night own a book factory.

If you could film it like one of those grotesquely over the top drink driving ads it would be perfect.

Slamming into all that cake at what appears to be high speed.

Lovely.
Sostie
Isn't that new Coke advert quite lovely?

Also loving the new Citreon ad with the dolphins in the car. Not really for the dolphins, but for using another Bobby Darin classic (Beyond The Sea)

Yes. Because the main type of cake is rice crispie cake, you'd severely damage yourself.
Zoe
As if the final full car is actually made of cake, it's probably iced polystyrene.

EDIT: From Skoda

Thank you for your e-mail.

I can advise that we are pleased to receive correspondence using the Feedback Form in the Contact Us section of our website. Although the Comments field appears limited, it will accept several pages of A4 text and it is received in this office as an e-mail.

I can advise that once filming was completed, we would have liked to have offered the Fabia cake to local charities, schools and hospitals. Unfortunately, as the car had been under studio lights for several days, it may have posed a health and safety risk if eaten and we were therefore unable to do this.

Some goodies from the car were preserved and vacuum packed such as the marzipan wing-mirrors, chocolate speedometer, wafer engine fan and the Fabia badge icing, and will be held as mementoes of the production.

It was decided that as we were unable to donate the cake to charity, the cake was instead recycled. It was taken away and composted, so that it could return to the natural environment. The cake was taken to a place called the East London Community Recycling Project in Clapton. The project has been set up to provide local residents and members with quality compost for use on their gardens or allotments.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to contact us. I can assure you that your contact details will not be used other than to respond to your e-mail.

Yours sincerely,

They can show the advert as many times as they like, but 'So Co' is never going to catch on like 'JD'.

Also, does Kris Marshall ever get to watch his own TV. "Can I watch Tracy Beaker?" "Yes, when you pay for the subscription, now FUCK OFF!"

I am very much enjoying Goths in Blackppol for Irn Bru, and loathing the self-tan advert that claims to be natural but in fact looks like she got in the way of a car paint machine on crusty orange (Ambre Solaire?), and another one which I forget but I'm sure it'll come back to me.

Is it my imagination or has the BT advert where the little girl wants to watch Tracy Beaker has been edited?
Previously the dad got relegated from the sofa by the girl with a bit of a huff, now he gives her a little jokey "sure you can" as he gets up.

I wondered what the hell that was when I flicked over mid advert to find the Goths on the rollercoaster, great Irn Bru ad but then again they made me laugh when the did the birthing advert before it got royally banned, Ive no idea why cause its a fantastic advert!

The Madeline McCann plea advert. What can come of it? Seriously, beyond hammering it into the minds of everyone even more there is nothing this increased exposure can bring.
"Put this poster up where ever you can"
Because everyone who would do that hasn't already?

Here's some nice info about the Skoda ad on the BBC's Ad Breakdown. £500,000 pounds for a cake skoda? Blimey.

And I like that coke advert that's back on. I know coke is an evil multi-national and all, but whatever. It's the one where a guy buys a bottle from a machine and the bottle gets all the fanfairs and everything before it rools out at the bottom.

I haven't seen the Madeline advert yet but I've seen the posters in every other shop window up and down exeter high street. What exactly do they expect to achieve by putting posters on Exeter high street? I can wholeheartedly understand why Portuguese people were upset that she was getting more publicity than a missing Portuguese child gets.

Something has been troubling me since the inception of that Girls Aloud Sunsilk ad - is the 'girl' they pick up actually a girl? (I realise this may be offensive to the actress in question, but when she's sauntering off, head held high at the end of the thirty seconds, she has a suspiciously mannish profile, and I thought maybe they'd actually got a drag queen or similar to do it).

QUOTE (Charlie Brooker)
Right now, there's a rash of commercials which combine "twee" with "patronising" - "tweetronising" if you like, although that's quite tweetronising in itself. You can spot a tweetronising commercial a mile off - it'll have a modern folk music backing track, a cast of non-threatening urban hippy replicants, and a drowsy hello-birds-hello-sky overall attitude that makes you want to chase it down an alleyway and kick it until the police arrive.

Furthermore, tweetronising takes infantilism to a new level. They're like children's programmes in miniature - not so much talking down to the viewer as placing the viewer in a cot and tickling his chin. George Orwell once described advertising as "the rattling of a stick inside a swill-bucket". These days it's more like the rattling of a rattle.

Take the current Orange ad in which a woman stands in a forest unfolding a range of ain't-it-cute props while a self-consciously lo-fi recording of a female voice recites: "I like conversations that last for hours and hours/Full of jokes about singing bees and talking flowers/I like it when they take up whole mornings/And fill up whole nights/When they mention books and cocktails/And trumpets and kites/I like them when they talk about parties and talk about dreams/And talk about cakes covered in cream/And all that they need is me and a friend/ And the talking to go on and never to end."

Never to end? I'm all for a bit of pointless digression, but this imbecile wants to witter about "singing bees" and "trumpets and kites" for eternity. This is a description of hell. Orange does not think insipid babble is the sole preserve of womankind, incidentally - there is a companion ad backed with a man moronically singing about how he likes to talk about dinosaurs, cars, and "anything that pops in my brain/and then falls out my mouth/kind of like the rain". He is either naturally stupid or recovering from a head injury. Or maybe years of intensive mobile phone use have caused a brain tumour so huge, it has crushed his IQ, leaving him with the conversational skills of a six-year-old.


Yes.

God, I'd like a bit of Brooker.

It'd save you some time if you were a producer though, that's the incidental music for an entire season of an American teen show.

Well there is a little effort there, and is kind of on the right side of the musical fence.

Like that Legolas stand-up I inexplicably got one birthday.

Blood, sweat and tears, really don't matter. Just the things that you do, in this garden.

If Legolas was real I bet he'd love The Levellers. Gimli would be into AC/DC. The rest would listen to Wagner. Except Sam....he'd like Rufus Wainwright.
